In 2016, Danielle co-founded a monthly meet-up for creative professionals called Rise & Design with watercolorist and friend, Yao Cheng. Together they tackle common entrepreneurial hangups every first Friday: hiring employees, work/life balance, pricing, offering general support and encouragement over causal, breakfast vibes. 

Yao and Danielle encourage anyone utilizing design or creative problem solving to attend, which has resulted in a robust community of diverse backgrounds, creeds, and industries with careers spanning local to international renown.

Sometimes hauling ass in the morning is asking too much. Thankfully Rise & Design has expanded to Cocktails, a mid-month happy hour every third Wednesday from 5-9pm at Curio. Same vibes, stiffer drinks.
